Book Description

 August 3, 2010
First in a new mystery series that will have readers stitching-and itching for more 

When Marcy Singer opens an embroidery specialty shop in quaint Tallulah Falls, Oregon, she throws a soiree and a Stitch-In. Soon, Marcy's sign- up sheet for embroidery classes fills up and everyone in town seems willing to raise a glass-or a needle-to support the newly-opened Seven Year Stitch.

Then Marcy finds the shop's previous tenant dead in the store-room, a message scratched with a tapestry needle on the wall beside him. Now Marcy's shop has become a crime scene, and she's the prime suspect. She'll have to find the killer before someone puts a final stitch in her.

  2. This sounds like a great read-I love the cover and title! The last kind of embroidery that I did was ribbon embroidery. It's really fun and you can do some neat stitches with the ribbon to achieve some terrific looks. Thank you for the post and contest! woodrumbetty@gmail.com

  9. I used to cross stich back in high school but once I hit college I didn't continue. Kinda lost the knack for it. Now I am more interested in crochet or maybe taking up cross stich again. Can't say I ever did any embroidery itself though. Love a chance to read the book. Thank you. lady.janel@hotmail.com

  14. I'm afraid I'm totally inept with a needle of any kind. The only kind of craft I've been successful with is furniture painting. I've created a few fun pieces for my home. Thanks for the contest.
